Also, when picking champions, players who purchased the champion should have priority over those who are using them temporarily (or who rented them if the above idea is implemented)

I don't like this as it would piss off people who were trying to try a champ and keep getting booted. Its first come first serve

RiotChris:
Why Rotate?
We currently rotate the 10 free Champions so players who haven't spent too long in the game can try out a few different champions. If they want the convenience of playing the Champions whenever they want, they can unlock them by playing (and earning Influence Points) or for Riot Points.

We also want to let people try a Champion out before spending earned points to unlock them.

Making all the Champions free in practice mode only would drive a large part of our player base into just the practice games. Having more people in match-making means shorter queue times and more even matches (here's why (http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=12029)), so moving lots of players into practice games (unless they just need practice) isn't great. Besides, that would make it seem like we are charging for match-making.

How do you choose Champions?
We are trying to do 3 things:
1. Give new players some easy to play options
2. Give new players a mix of Champion types so you can have a viable Champion mix with only new players (yes the types are debatable because many Champions can be played more than one way)
3. Give experienced players a chance to try new Champions

The first goal does mean we rotate in some Champions more than others.

I hope that gives you insight into our motivations - I've attached a chart to let you look at which Champions have been in past rotations.

What do you think?
Given all this information, do you still think we should do 10 permanently free Champions and end the rotations (as suggested here)?

We're always open to making the game better.

Thank you for your reply. I see now that putting all champions available in practise mode could keep players away from normal games, although we still have the Bot games.

Wouldn't there be an option to make a separate section for Bot games and make them a bit stronger with no IP and EXP gain together with all the champions available?

Because I am entirely sure that players wouldn't rush Bot games if they get no IP and EXP gain. They can only try out the heroes and see if they will like it.

Hoping for your reply.

I think someone had suggested before a 5-10 second time frame before a match where you may only select characters that you have permanently added to your account. Personally I think it may be a good idea. But I do like the rotation system.

Corki was recently nerfed as many felt he was overpowerful. If you feel he was nerfed too hard, please make a thread in the Champion Feedback Forum.
